I'll answer that first with jus....*shrug*..
hes not as bad as Steve, because some of the stuff he sells is 
good, and steve seems to be the kind of guy who would f*ck you in the ass
and not even care.  nick it seems is not as cut throat, I jus don't think
he knows as much as he thinks he does, especially enuff to run a shop.
I heard from a "hi standing official" on the list that his car only runs

Well, the head is not really that big of a deal.  have you tried talkin to
esslinger engineering?  I heard alot of good stuff about them.  dont know
what they charge though.  or you can jus get the valves from them, I think
Joe said they are 12 bux each, and get them put in your head, but I would
prolly jus look into getting the hole head from them.  They have been into
these things I bet longer than anyone.
As for the cam, I will only say that I have not heard of anyone running
fast with one of those...hear alot fo hopefuls, but no actual subtance.
U dont like Carls Engle?
